The Good and Bad of Winsock LSP


Your security is enhanced by Winsock LSP as it disables malicious network commands.  Also  URL content sniffers, Quality of Service, stream-based,  stream based network sniffers, and data logging, is all possible with LSP. 


Unscrupulous individuals can use LSP too.  Adware and/or spyware programs using LSP can intercept private Internet communication.  Stolen information can be stolen and collected by Hackers.  They can also steal financial information and SPAM authors use LSP to collect data for their SPAM campaigns. 

Without malice though, you can still have LSP problems.  Your Winsock catalog and your Windows registry can be damaged by improperly installed LSP programs or even LSP programs that do not register correctly.
